Grundy County News May 2019
Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Being a driver for our program could be the perfect fit! It could be one day a week, one day a month, or even one day a year whatever works for you. We have routes in Morris, Minooka, Gardner, and Mazon and we are looking for a few additional drivers to help with days here and there throughout the month. Routes typically take about an hour and go out around 10:30AM to 12:30 PM depending when they are picked up from Saratoga Tower in Morris. If you are interested please give us a call at 815-941-1590.
Home Delivered Meals
Our Home Delivered Meal program provides a hot meal delivered to your door. Volunteers deliver the meals Monday through Friday between 11AM and 1PM. You will receive a hot meal and the cold pack that includes your bread, milk and fruit for the day. Additional meals and or weekend meals may also be available. If you live in Grundy County and are in need of meals please call us at 815-941-1590.
We travel to Coal City, Mazon and Minooka, to provide a community café meal!
We also serve a congregate lunch at Saratoga Tower in Morris Monday through Friday at 11:30 AM. On Wednesday and Friday it is followed by Bingo. The cost for these meals depend on the day but is a suggested donation of $3.50 to $6 per person. We do ask that you RSVP to 815-941-1590 by 9AM on Monday.
Our next Monthly party at Saratoga Towers is our Mother’s Day Lunch on Friday May 10th and our Memorial Day Luncheon is on Wednesday May 15th. We will start with a short service at 11:15AM followed by lunch and Bingo. If you are interested in joining us please RSVP to Marge at 815-941-1590.
Whistle Stop Café and R Place both provide a pre-determined senior meal twice a month at their respective locations for $6.
In addition, we also offer Great Plates meal coupons that are good for either R Place or Whistle Stop, and those are $6 each. They are usable at any time when you make your meal selection from their “Great Plates” menu and you use that coupon to pay for your meal.
Please come out and join us at one or all of our café opportunities and remember if you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, we just may have what you are looking for!
